Merton: The Seven Storey Mountain

If you’ve never read the remarkable book The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton, you really should consider it. It’s not just for Catholics; it is a tremendously readable autobiography of a brilliant man on spiritual sojourn. One of those books you pick up and have difficulty putting down. I quote some of the book – and share how it made me think.

    One of my all time favorite books, after reading it you’ll want to read his journals. Always inspiring, great pre-vatican II reading!
